Royal College of Anaesthetists' Anaesthesia 2019 - PQIP Visual Abstract Competition

There will be a PQIP visual abstract competition at the RCoA’s flagship conference, Anaesthesia 2019, which is being held at etc venues, St Pauls, London on 20 – 22 May. We invited entries which either used PQIP data and/or detailed projects which were based on any of the PQIP top five improvement priorities published in last year’s annual report.

We received a fantastic response to the call for submissions and were thoroughly impressed by the initiatives taking place in hospitals across the UK. The entries approved for display at Anaesthesia 2019 can be viewed by clicking on the links below, with the winner due to be announced onstage by a panel of judges from a shortlist of four finalists.
